  • The $1 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill Is Out: Now Find Out What's In It

    Late yesterday, Washington lawmakers dropped a massive, 1,582-page spending bill that will fund the entire government for fiscal year 2014.

    Known as the omnibus spending bill, the gigantic legislative text works off a budget deal that set spending at $1.012 trillion—$45 billion more than previous spending caps that were agreed upon by a bipartisan majority in 2011.

    In other words, your tax dollars will fund this bloated spending bill, which adds to the nation’s debt of $17 trillion.

    With so much at stake, The Foundry has posted the actual bill for you to read. Last night and into the early hours of this morning, Heritage’s team of policy experts combed through the bill to produce this comprehensive analysis. It highlights the pork projects, ineffective government programs, and giveaways for corporate cronies included in the omnibus.

    But in case you’re pressed for time, here are the highlights of what our experts have documented so far (in 140 characters or less).

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
